Many of you have been following the One Crafty Contest at One Artsy Mama, so this news is not new to you! However, if you’re just hearing about this, I’m happy to announce that I’ve made it to the final 3! I am still in shock about this. I entered the contest mainly just for fun and to ‘try’ but with absolutely no expectations.
It started out with 82 entries. 20 were voted in to be contestants. There have been 5 rounds of crafts. each featuring a specific material. It is now down to the final 3 and time to vote for the winner!
I don’t want to just shamelessly ask you to vote for me… but…. vote for me? Ok, seriously, if I was your favorite crafter for the contest, then vote for me. If I wasn’t, then vote for your favorite. This should really be about talent and not about popularity. That being said, I DO feel like I did a good job. I put countless hours of planning and crafting into my entries. (I spent almost 30 hours alone on the Paper Boutique) I think my hubby and kids are happy that this is coming to a close so they can see my face more often!
There are 3 winners. So whether or not I ‘win’, I still feel like I’ve won. Amy at One Artsy Mama has provided a small overview of all of my crafts in the contest, so you can see what I’ve done when you go to vote! If you want a more detailed look into my crafts, you can find my posts about them HERE. The Paper Boutique is the only one I haven’t posted about (yet). I also haven’t posted about my burlap project, but we weren’t allowed to reveal which was our craft until about 5 minutes ago. Mine was the purse, by the way. You can read about those HERE and HERE.
I also want to say thank you to everyone who has been following the contest and voting! Whether you voted for me or not, you’ve made the contest what it is. 🙂 And Amy, if you’re reading this, thanks for putting some extra fun into my life this past month! I think you worked harder than the contestants to make this contest happen! You are amazing!
